Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
To add to the bye week dodging in drafting...if there's a sure fire fantasy player with your pick, and you already have a couple people at that position that have the same buy week, don't hesitate in drafting them- trade them in a package deal to get someone better.
My #1 is ALWAYS follow ur gut insticts no matter what ppl tell u.....and #2early rounds are for position starters in the mid rounds dont go position go best player on the board and late rounds are 4 sleepers...next...thoughts

Best tips I got....
Look at playoff schedule, especially QB. You want 20 plus points from them, not 10 or less.
Early rounds, try to get a top something. Get the elite 8 RBs off the board first and then look for a top 4 WR or top 4 QB. The difference between everyone else in at each positions lessens.
Try to keep a balance. It serves you no good if you are sitting with 5 good RBs and weak performing WRs. You got to fill those roster spots. You get no points for that stellar bench you have. Plus, you gotta leave room for those late round sleeper picks that you want to take a chance on. What else can you do with those picks?
Don't draft a kicker (You might want to do the same for IDP). Use your last pick on that extra unproven rookie that could show something in the preseason and earn a spot on your roster. You lose nothing by getting your K on the waiver wire right before the season starts.
Don't overlook a tested fantasy veteran. People like Westbrook and Driver get underdrafted each year. Give those fantasy rocks there due respect. The are solid.
If you select a RB that has a good back-up, handcuff them. If Parker, Barber, Brown, Portis, or LaDale White get hurt, their running mate may put up some great numbers if they are the sole ball carrier.
What else you got?
